Join us Friday, July 9th as we talk with 3D Character Artist Alina Ivanchenko about the diverse art she is making for illustrations, games, and 3D printing.

During this exclusive interview, our host, Adam Hartel, will be speaking with Alina about the different ways of approaching 3D tools like ZBrush when creating art for a variety of purposes. Alina will take viewers inside her process for three different pieces: one made for a personal illustration project, another for 3D printing, and a final one for the gaming industry. With over 12 years of industry experience, Alina can speak to a multitude of art styles, from realism to stylized in both 2D and 3D. She will share a little bit of her artistic journey before highlighting projects and doing a small demo. Be sure to stick around for the whole stream to ask Alina questions in the chat.
